Mae Clair’s Wizards with Words: Christine Warner

Hello, Wizard fans!  Today, I have the honor of turning my blog over to guest author and Wizard with Words, Christine Warner. Christine is discussing her latest release, TWO TIMING THE BOSS, and I’m thrilled to have her here! So, without further ado (and magic wand waving), take it away, Christine!

~ooOOoo~

How far would you go to help out a family member?

Let’s face it; there is a lot of love and hate between families. Some family members are close—best friends with the bonus of being related—and others are so polar opposite they can’t be in the same room for a few minutes, let alone a family gathering.

In my latest release—Two Timing the Boss from The Wild Rose Press—I share the story of Farah Smith and Keller Donovan, but I’m also sharing the deep relationship between Farah and her twin sister Karah.

Farah’s twin was in an accident. In order to help Karah afford a surgery, Farah lets her sometimes outspoken sister talk her into dressing in disguise to up her chances at securing a job at Donovan Enterprises as the personal assistant to boss-man himself, Keller Donovan. 

Brown-eyed, auburn haired Farah doesn’t doubt her abilities to get the job, but when her twin shows her pictures of Keller’s past assistants—how they all tend to be blue-eyed blondes who wear stilettos and dress in unflattering suits—she agrees to don a disguise if it could increase her chances of getting the coveted position that pays an insane hourly wage.

That’s right, Farah would go that far to help her sister because of loyalty and love.

Then the unthinkable happens and ‘the real’ Farah ends up in hot water when she meets her ‘boss’ on the street and he doesn’t recognize her—though he notices something familiar. Over their brief conversation his attraction becomes obvious. Part of the ‘real’ Farah is thrilled a man like Keller would be attracted to her because she’s been battling her own attraction since day one. But her sensible side won’t allow her to build false hopes.  Her position with Donovan Enterprises is shaky temporary at most—plus nothing can become of their shared desire because of her deception.

Farah is an amazing sister and Two Timing the Boss isn’t just a romance but a tribute to those amazing people who would go above and beyond expected limits to help out a family member they love.

BLURB:
To secure the funds for her twin sister’s surgery, Farah Smith will need to sacrifice her values as well as alter her appearance to work for a man she finds morally bankrupt. With a blonde wig and stilettos strapped on, Farah’s a clone of Keller Donovan’s harem of past assistants, insuring a position within his company.

The moment Farah and Keller meet, she realizes her most daunting task isn’t the job, but fighting an attraction to a man whose ruthlessness is as legendary in the bedroom as it is in the boardroom.

Disillusioned by his parent’s disastrous marriage, Keller Donovan is determined no relationship should have more than a six-month shelf life. But after he meets Farah Smith, all bets are off. Suddenly he wants more than a personal assistant and private bed warmer. Unfortunately, his offer of an affair doesn’t sit well with her, despite the stranglehold she’s put on his heart.

Can Farah and Keller find happiness and love over deceit and libido? Will the two embrace each other or hold fast to past history?

EXCERPT:
These damn shoes would be the death of her.  She could read the headlines now: Penniless P.A. Falls to her Death while on Job Interview.

Almost to her destination, with no more mishaps, her confidence surfaced.  Okay, maybe mastering this heel thing wouldn’t be such a big deal.  Her steps became light, almost bouncy.  Although she sensed Keller Donovan behind her, she didn’t let it deter her feeling of success.  She stepped onto the large black and red area rug, less than ten feet from her target.  The leather chairs.

“Oh!”  Farah’s spiky heel caught on the edge of the expensive rug.  Her legs shook and she shot her arms out from her sides, circling them like a bird about to take flight.  She fought to regain balance inside the ridiculous stilts strapped to her feet.  A brawl to the death.  Over when she looked down to see the rug coming up to kiss her face.  She threw out her hands, sucked in a breath and closed her eyes, scrunching her face as she prepared for impact.

But nothing happened.  There were stars all right, and a blazing jolt of electricity shot from her toes, up her legs, through her body and exited with the small gasp which escaped her lips.  Somehow Keller Donovan had grabbed her around the waist before she met the floor. 

Heat burned her cheeks.  He may have saved her body from bruises, but her ego, and whatever confidence she’d walked in with had shattered.

“Let’s not have an accident before your health benefits kick in.”  His breath tickled her ear from behind.  Chills hugged her backbone.

His touch released an unsettling flutter in her abdomen.  She sucked in her stomach from the pressure of his strong arms wrapped around her middle, afraid to breathe.

  1. Love the premise, Christine! Growing up, my sister (8 years younger) and I were more or less mortal enemies. We appreciate (and love) each other now, but growing up we were just too far apart. I think we drove my parents crazy! Good luck with your book!!!

    • Hi, Kristina, Thanks for checking out the interview and commenting. I have two sisters, both older than me. I was always the bratty young one, LOL. At least that’s what they tell me — that I was spoiled. Although they are 7 and 11 years older than me, we are very close now. Amazing how things change with age.

  2. Hi, Christine. There aren’t many limits, are there? To what we’d do, I mean, though we might have to do severe damage to them ourselves after we rescue them!

    • Isn’t that the truth? Mine is sprawling, over-flowing and becoming a three-headed hydra, LOL. Every time I open my Kindle I feel like a kid in a candy story trying to decide what delicious read/treat to gobble up next!

    • So glad you enjoyed the excerpt Loni!

      As for TBR piles, I’m with both you and Mae…mine is so out of control. And then when I finally have time to read and try to pick just one, it’s way to difficult. If only I could read a few books at a time…lol

    • Thanks for coming by Sue….and glad to hear you are enjoying the SSS snippets.
      I’ve been blessed like Mae to have a very close family as well, but I’ve heard from several friends it’s not the norm and have seen several instances first hand. But the good thing about that is if you aren’t close with your actual family it seems like friends usually fill in that gap 🙂

  3. Christine, your book sounds like tons of fun…and right up my alley. I’ll definitely check it out. Mae, thanks for featuring Christine. I’ve been looking for someone new and a tad naughty to read…and this sounds like just the ticket! 🙂
